This is the quick recipe that my DH and I devised a few years ago. We enjoy it.

Maid-Rite Sandwiches
(Our Simple Version)

Soak 2 tablespoons of dried onion flakes in 3 tablespoons (minimum) water.

When rehydrated---15 or 20 minutes typically---combine in saucepan with ground chuck, approximately one pound, 1-1/2 teaspoons chicken soup base, one-cup water . This is the approximate amount of water. You will be evaporating most liquid. “Mush” well to aid in getting the meat into smaller pieces---as you would to make Cincinnati Chili.

Cook over low or medium heat, stirring occasionally, until nearly all liquid is evaporated.

Serve on buns or open-face over bread. (May serve plain or with fresh chopped onion and yellow mustard.)
